Blizzard considering a free-to-play StarCraft II multiplayer
The lead designer on StarCraft II, Dustin Browder has revealed that Blizzard are looking at doing a free-to-play version of the game's multiplayer.
Speaking at a panel at this year's Valencia eSports Congress, Browder said that free-to-play multiplayer is an option that they are exploring but they're not quite sure how to monetize it yet.
Browder explained, "[We're] looking at free to play as an option for the multiplayer. We don't know how we would monetize it. While it might be good fun for me to play against someone with only half the units available to them, thats not going to be an enjoyable experience for them."
This may take a while to appear though as the remaining two parts of the StarCraft II saga, Heart Of The Swarm and Legacy Of The Void, are still as yet unreleased.
